C'tee Transfers Funds to Cover Holocaust-Fund Debt


The Knesset Finance Committee approved, Sunday, a special transfer of nine million shekels to cover part of the deficit of the Holocaust Survivors' Welfare Fund and an additional two million shekels to cover overheads connected to taking care of the survivors.

With an additional 16 million shekels in debt open to debate, Committee Chairman Moshe Gafni demanded that the fund, the Treasury, the Holocaust Survivors' Authority and the Welfare Ministry reach agreements in order to avoid harming the fund's operations and the subsequent effect on the survivors.
